(CNN) -- Three service members from the NATO-led forces in Afghanistan were killed in action Thursday, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said.

One died in an insurgent attack in the east and two died in bombings in the south. ISAF has not released their nationalities, but the British Defence Ministry confirmed that one of the service members was British.

The British soldier was killed in an explosion during a foot patrol in the Sangin District of Helmand province, located in southern Afghanistan, the ministry said.
